1978 173 MILE BEETLE

One of the very last right hand drive Beetles produced with only 173 miles on the clock.
Registered on the 16th March 1978 UMH 398S is one of those amazing cars that has been tucked away and then rediscovered in the last few years. The Beetle had been dry stored and required a refurbishment to bring it up to the standard you see it today.
The Beetle has been thoroughly refurbished with all the brakes and mechanics having benefitted from a full refresh with items replaced /rebuilt where required. The Beetle has had a full external repaint in its original stunning Riad Yellow.   
As you can see from the pictures this Beetle is outstanding the bodywork and interior are amazing and it really does look like it has come straight out of the showroom.
This is an amazing bit of history and sure to become more valuable as time goes by.
